Mary, Full of Grace

Catholic Beliefs about Mary and How We Know

New Books Network 2022

Chris Padgett explains Catholic doctrine about the Virgin Mary and how both Sacred Tradition and Scripture inform the Magisterium. He talks about his Baptist upbringing, his own journey to the Church, and how he then became a theologian and one of the most influential Catholic speakers—and musicians—in the United States today. He explains Catholic Mariology and how we radically venerate and love Mary (dulia or hyperdulia) but adore (latria) only God. Padgett also talks about how this conversion caused a rupture with his family of origin, but also how he met his wife and started his own rambunctious and joyful family.
